The Week - Junior - - On Screen -

We’ve cov­ered some great mu­sic apps on The Week Junior, but SoundFor­est is a new app that gets you mak­ing tunes with... trees. That’s right, trees.

Not real trees, though: vir­tual ones on the screen of an iPhone or iPad – plus par­rots, snails, worms and other crea­tures you might find in forests around the world.

The app uses se­quencers, which is what real mu­si­cians use to cre­ate elec­tronic mu­sic. You swipe and tap on a bar at the bot­tom of the screen to choose notes – rep­re­sented by the wildlife – and then place them above in a pat­tern to make tunes.

From cre­at­ing your own ver­sion of hits like

Des­pac­ito, to mak­ing your own orig­i­nal tunes, it’s re­ally fun. You can use some sounds with the free down­load, while a sin­gle in-app pur­chase of £1.99 un­locks ev­ery­thing

to play with.
